BareMinerals’ New 2-in-1 Brightening Serum + Foundation

What it is: BareMinerals BareSkin Foundation, $29

What it does: Combines the skin-brightening properties of a serum with tone-correcting mineral foundation to improve skin’s health and appearance while masking imperfections.

How it works: We can barely contain our excitement about this beautiful fusion of skincare and makeup. Sure, BB and CC creams boast tone-correcting benefits, but this mineral foundation is formulated (and actually feels) more like a serum. It’s extremely lightweight and the color is very buildable, so you can wear it sheer or layer it on to get the coverage you need. Bonus: It’s free of oil, silicone, parabens and fragrance, and it’s non-comedogenic, so it works well with every skin type.

Vitamin C is the brightening powerhouse in the mix, while lilac plant stem cells provide antioxidant protection. Free of chemical sunscreen, the formula contains titanium dioxide to give broad spectrum SPF 20, further protecting skin from damaging UV rays. You can confidently wear this every day and know that you’re not just giving skin a temporary mask of perfection, but you’re truly improving it for the long run. The line includes 20 different colors, from porcelein to mocha, with varying cool and warm undertones to help you find the perfect match.

Why you care: The mix of vitamin C and antioxidants in BareSkin will address dull, less glowing skin while the pigment creates a flawless finish. Skincare multi-tasking at its finest.
